The EDF Climate Corps team is heading to Baltimore this week for the annual Net Impact Conference to begin fellow recruitment efforts for the 2013 summer fellowship. EDF Staff Elena Kocherovsky, David Fox, Jocelyn Climent and Liz Delaney are looking forward to connecting with prospective students and hosts, reconnecting with alumni fellows and attending the many sessions the conference has to offer.
With five years of successful fellowships at 200 impressive organizations, we are eager to continue the momentum into 2013. Every year since we started the program, the projects have delved deeper into the challenges of commercial energy efficiency. And each year we meet fantastic candidates at the Net Impact Conference who are up for the task of hunting for energy savings.
EDF Climate Corps will have a booth at the Expo all day Friday, October 26, and will also be hosting an evening reception that same day from 6:30 – 8:30 pm at the Alewife Restaurant, just a few blocks from the convention center. Any students or career services staff interested in learning more about the program and meeting the team are welcome to attend. EDF Climate Corps alumni are also encouraged to join us.
David Fox will also be moderating a panel discussion titled “Dismantling Barriers to Energy Efficiency: A How-To for Intrapreneurs”, with REI’s CSR manager, Kirk Meyers and Booz Allen Hamilton’s Manager of Sustainability, Elizabeth Wayt. The session will take place Friday, October 26 from 3 – 4:15 pm, and is open to professionals.
Tom Murray, Managing Director for EDF’s Corporate Partnerships Program, will also be speaking on a panel titled “Friend or Foe? Natural Gas Changing the Game for Climate and Energy” that Friday from 3 –4:15 pm, which is open to both students and professionals.
EDF Climate Corps is now accepting applications for 2013 hosts and fellows. Visit our website (www.edfclimatecorps.org) to learn more and join our mailing list to get updates on our fellow application process.
We hope to see you there!
